Lurkers, lurkers everywhere :)

[001] Am making a mockup for my 2009 LJ/DW layout reboot (the spark is back, yay!). Result so far is here and is very rough (haven't added the icons/sidebars or anything)- the idea is that I'll just design it on Core2 and have it work on both sites *hopes like hell* Otherwise, its back to Expressive/Mixit.

[002]painless_j pointed this out: Why Aren't People Commenting on My Post. I started reading it, stopped, ran to the loo and then came back and finished reading it XD It's insanely funny and probably true in most cases XD

My favorite part was definitely:
10% of the people who read you only lurk. They lurk everywhere. Maybe they can't type. Maybe they have tentacles and can't find a tentacle-ready keyboard. You don't know. And do you really want to risk displaying your prejudice against the betentacled?
*points to icon* PEOPLE WITH TENTACLES ARE LOVE. And kinky.

But anyway, the poster is a girl after my own heart - her profile info had me nodding to EVERYTHING, especially:

I am the world's shittiest commenter; I suck at leaving them, and I suck at replying to them. But I try hard, "try" being the key word, there. If I don't reply to a comment you left, believe me, I still read it and loved it and cuddled it to my heart; RL just ate up the time I had for replying to it.
Okay so ended up adding her on DW despite my intention to wait till Open Beta >_> DAMN IT.

[003] Watched the first three episodes of the drama Black & White after getting seduced by darkeyedwolf's pimping post which was HOT. The drama had its moments and even a near boy on boy liplock *_*
I can't wait to see your finished layout! Is that background/super-header going to be fixed?

Mixit is the bomb, so don't be bummed if you have to go back to it.

It won't be fixed, no - its less stressful on the eyes IMO for the images to scroll instead :) At least for long term reading in my case (the redesign would last for a year hopefully ^_^ like the previous ones)

Mixit is one of the best on LJ, but...Core2 is very shiny at the moment haha
Tentacles are kinky though they're still weird.

And LMAO. I love that post. Mind if I rec it to people? Actually, I know you don't mind. The more the merrier, right? Plus it's informative and very hilarious.

BTW: What did you think of the judges using the save so soon on AI last week? :3
Lol, as long as they are attached to hot boys, I have no probs whatsoever XD

HAHA YOU KNOW ME ALL TOO WELL :D Pimp away! There are quite a few interesting posts by her so might end up stalking on both LJ and DW >_>

Am waaay beind on AI ^^ Not even sure who'd left at the moment - who did the judges save???
FFFFfff. Great minds think alike and all that.

They saved Matt so this week it's double elimination. Grawr. I do not want them to use that save so soon.
They saved MATT?? WTF PPL. Just found out through f's recaps that Allison was in the bottom two? God, I just don't get it.
TFV is awesome. I've had her friended forever, first for her awesome rec posts (seriously, so awesome!), and now for her baby posts. ♥
See, this is where I wonder why the flist never mentions these people in posts - is their awesomeness so taken for granted that people assume everyone knows? A part of me ended up going, WHERE HAS SHE BEEN ALL MY LIFE?
For me that's usually the case. I always assume that everyone knows about all the awesome people/fics/meta posts/whathaveyou so I don't ever talk about them in my LJ. Especially for people like TFV who are so active in fandom, and have such huge f'lists and f'of lists.
LOL that [001] is so true I regret to say I love when people are interested in commenting on my journal, but I try not to let it bother me too much if they don't. After all half my posts are probably really boring. XD
Lol, in all honesty my comments are probably the telepathic ones - I get thinky thoughts and mean to comment...but rarely get around to it XD My main question though is HOW DOES SHE KNOOOOOOOW hahahaha - its all so very true!
For every one comment made, there are 99 instances of silent lurking IMO XD

I think I will always end up with tans, browns and apple greens with maybe a splash of reddish pink somewhere. I just find them mellow and easy on the eyes *shrugs* But glad it works :)
